By now we should have learned to expect the unexpected from YouTube, with well-known videos such as 'Charlie Bit My Finger' and 'Potter Puppet Pals' earning more than millions of views. But even the kooky Neil Ciceriga is dwarfed in weirdness by the 'Salad Fingers' video, which is a thoroughly disturbing experience.
The 'Salad Fingers' video tells the story of the flash animated character by the same name. His obsession in life? Rusty spoons. Oh yes, and the occasional kettle.
Those of you that have seen 'Twin Peaks' may just be able to fathom how such a simple two minute video can give you nightmares. The 'Salad Fingers' video here shows episode one: a relatively tame expedition into the world of Salad Fingers. Those of you made of stronger stuff may want to venture further into his world with later episodes.
